Ring in the New Year with a dynamic mix of old and new music performed by the SFCA Orchestra, conducted by Joseph Illick, and the Harlem String Quartet—including a new arrangement for string quartet and orchestra by Randall Fleischer of Leonard Bernstein’s iconic "West Side Story."
The Harlem Quartet infuses classical music with a fresh, youthful energy and is dedicated to building diversity in classical music. They have also performed with jazz pianist Chick Corea and were guests at the Panama Jazz Festival.
The SFCA Orchestra had been under the leadership of Joseph Illick since 2008, building a strong reputation as a band that plays with excellent ensemble, rich tone, and passionate sweep. The orchestra comprises musicians from northern New Mexico and visiting artists from Phoenix, Philadelphia, Washington, and New York.
